Thrivent Choice Program
In the spring of 2010, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will launch a program called Thrivent Choice. Thrivent Choice will be funded at a level similar to the combined budgets of the GivingPlus program and the Care in Congregations program which ended in 2009. As the name implies, it’s designed to give members a choice in directing some of Thrivent Financial’s charitable funds. Thrivent Choice is still being developed, but here’s a preview of the two main elements of the program:
Voting - All adult benefit and associate members will have an opportunity to vote on how to direct charitable funding among a short list of national charities.
Choice Dollars - Eligible benefit members will be able to direct dollars to thousands of Lutheran non-profit organizations like schools, camps, colleges, or even your Lutheran congregation. Eligibility is based on your involvement with Thrivent Financial; through your ownership of Thrivent Financial life, health, or annuity products; or your leadership with our chapter. Note: Directing Choice Dollars will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Thrivent Choice program. Participation will be simple and easy, without any complicated forms to complete. You’ll be able to vote or direct Choice Dollars online or by phone.
Additional details about the program will be shared as they become available. In the meantime, please visit www.thrivent.com/thriventchoiceinfo to sign up for e-mail updates.
